Age Is Just A Number

Age is just a number, to which many have attached great significance. Somehow, it’s given more meaning than it should. And, why not, the world around us, with its prevailing cultural beliefs and social norms, reinforces this harmful thinking. Every day, even down to the language we are exposed to it. From headlines that include words like the elderly or senior when referring to older people to the very definition of aging. It feels as if we are subliminally taught that aging is somehow negative. It’s something to be endured or something that makes us less capable. So, what can you do? Don’t buy the mindset in the first place.

Change Your Mindset

From the moment we are born, we begin to age. It’s inevitable. But, reaching a certain age doesn’t mean you become invisible. While we can’t stop the aging process, we can influence how well we age. Sure, chronologically speaking, age is just a number, and that you cannot change. But, what you can change is your mindset.

“You’re only as old as you feel.” As sentiments go, this one has its flaws of being both platitudinous and blaming, as if feeling old is your fault. However, as it turns out, whoever coined this term may have actually been onto something! The point is, age is subjective! A positive attitude and a healthy active lifestyle can keep you young!

The Optimism Effect

Age is really only a number, that’s all. It has no limitations! The only limitations are the ones you set for yourself. It’s like Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” Those who are fearless, never grow old.

Those who dare to become their truest version will find a deeper purpose in life. And, when life has a purpose, time has no boundaries. When time has no boundaries, age really is just a number!

Redefine Aging

Redefine aging is something we live and breathe at Chateau La Jolla. We believe retirement is an invitation to become the very best version of you.

In a world that often defines and limits people by age, when you believe anything is possible at any time, there is nothing that can stop you… not even your age.

What do you want to do with the next part of your life? Do you want to focus on spiritual development? Start a new business or career? Improve your health and well-being, or volunteer? No matter what it is, you choose to do; retirement is the time to do it all!
